Emailed CSV reports

You can have a CSV report emailed to you containing all known information about your chats over a designated time period. Here's a breakdown of each of the field names you'll see for each chat.

Please note, the timezone used in these reports is the timezone specified on the main admin agent account in Olark. You can edit those settings if you go here and click edit next to the correct agent.

For chats beginning with an automation rule, operator_initiated == FALSE.
The best way to track chats initiated by an automated message is with our Google Analytics integration.

If the visitor started the conversation, the visitor_first_response_delay column will show 0.
If the chat operator starts the conversation, operator_first_response_delay  will show 0.
One category will always show 0 since one must start the conversation (and that starting message isn't delayed from any other point.)

Custom Fields

Additionally, each report will contain a separate column for each custom field set via our Javascript API, as well as a separate column for each tag set using the !tag agent command. They will appear in a format like this:

  • custom_field_ABC: Data set in custom fields would be listed here
  • custom_field_XYZ: Data set in custom fields would be listed here
  • tag_ABC: Tags set during chat listed here
  • tag_XYZ: Tags set during chat listed here
